We Love These Waterproof Mascaras

When it comes to dazzling summer eyes, waterproof mascara is a must. Perfect for day-to-day outdoor activities and poolside fun, we highly recommend investing in a good waterproof mascara. See below for our best waterproof mascara picks this season.

Lancôme’s Hypnose Drama Waterproof Mascara ($26) – This mascara is a great option for women who fear ‘raccoon eyes’. It’s a long wearing formula that delivers 24 hours of smudge-proof wear. It’s also great for women with short lashes since it offers noticeable lash lengthening. We especially loved the curvy wand. It took some getting used to, but once mastered, the wand really helped elongate the lashes. We caution that some women have said Lancôme Hypnose takes a bit longer to remove than other waterproof brands, but the long wearing, rich finish makes it a worthwhile beauty buy.

Estee Lauder’s Sumptuous Waterproof Bold Volume Lifting Mascara ($21) – What we loved about this mascara was the striking colour and ease of use. The brown product option was a beautiful shade that really brought out our eye colour. We also liked that we only needed to apply one coat for a  good, long lash effect. Estee Lauder Sumptuous also kept up well with our busy day and didn’t flake or smudge after a hot afternoon outside.

L’Oréal Paris Double Extend Waterproof Mascara ($10.99) – If you’re a fan of drugstore beauty buys, L’Oreal Paris Double Extend Waterproof Mascara is a great option. The price is a little higher than the average drugstore mascara, but worth it for the lengthening and thickening formula. Especially great for light coloured or thin eyelashes, it coated our lashes very well without being clumpy.

Covergirl Queen Collection Lash Fanatic Waterproof Mascara ($6.49) – Another good drugstore buy, this mascara is ideal for the budget-conscious shopper who wants quality mascara at an affordable price. Reviews are positive for this waterproof mascara with fans confirming its light feel and easy to remove finish. The straight wand also gets high marks for its compact size and ease of use. If you need an affordable waterproof mascara for sporadic use, we agree that Covergirl Lash Fanatic is a solid choice.
